Is this true??
Hi everyone. Sorry for the retarded title I just couldn't phrase it differently
So recently I talked to someone working at Wellington in London. She is a research associate (Multi-assets investing), typical entry level fundamental analysis role. She had briefon the sell-side and moved to Wellington after completing her MSc. The interesting part is that she revealed her salary to me and based on what I had already read, I feel like she's not being truthful. I mean I checked her LinkedIn and she is legit and all but can't shake this clownery
She claims that her base was £50k in her first year and bonus could be as high as 60%, or even higher (??!!!) depending on performance. For the hours she said 70/a week max. How could this be true? It sounds ridiculous to me tbh. Graduate roles, according to various sources including this site and simple conventional wisdom, pay significantly lower for the first few years. She must be lying, right?
